Rule of thumb: Never trust an organization with “family” in the name

The Australians are having an election, and one of the parties is the Family First Party — a Christianist group — and another is the Australian Sex Party, which would have my vote just for the name, if I were Australian. And after watching this debate between the two, I am confirmed in my bias.

I’m a bit disillusioned with Julia Gillard, who’s a bit too quick to throw away principles to pander for votes (which probably means she’ll get elected). Fiona Patten, though, seems quite nice and forthright. And I like their ads.

Now if only the US had a party like that…
